Bucking the ethno-chic, thatch-roof trend, the Cayo District's 15-room Ka'ana is best suited to guests who want to check their outdoorsy personae before entry. Though endless adventures lie close at hand—among them, the caves of Jaguar Paw and ruins of Xunantunich—a return to the room signals a farewell to anything even vaguely Indiana Jonesian. Here you'll find perhaps the highest thread counts, cushiest beds, and iciest air conditioners in all of mainland Belize. Not that nature is shunned: The grounds are essentially a well-groomed, bougainvillea-centric little Eden. And the welcome-to-paradise theme is interpreted particularly deftly by the spa's lead therapist (try the papaya citrus smoothie body scrub), and the kitchen's executive chef (ingredients from the resort's organic garden turn up in just about everything, but the tortilla soup is one of their best outlets).
